Burning pool of oil beside well in rainforest Featured 29 Jun 1990 Print

Burning pool of oil beside well in rainforest

Burning pool of crude oil beside Sacha field oil well in the Amazonian rainforest of Ecuador. A large proportion of the rainforest in this area has been handed out to foreign oil companies for development. Beside each well is a pool of oil like this one; oil is dumped into the pool every 6 months when the well is cleaned. This pool has been accidentally set alight by a colonist who was burning a nearby section of the rainforest. The colonists tend to follow the oil company roads into previously-untouched rainforest areas
